Mary, Mary...


Well I am finally back after a lovely 4 day Easter break :) I hope you all had a lovely Easter too. I didn't go anywhere, I just spent some lovely downtime with my husband. Oh, and ate 'some' chocolate! 

Anyway, I'm a little late with sharing today's card, things seem to be taking me twice as long to do these days!

I've had this card idea in my head since my last class at The Paperlane! It just so happens it is perfect for the new CASology challenge seen HERE and below.

Here's a close up of the detail...

I used one of the ditsy flowers from Background Builders: Vines to create a clustered bloom similar to THIS card I shared for the current Uniko Studio Challenge. This time I paired it with the stem & leaves from Flower Power #4 and a sentiment from Flower Power #1.

If you'd like a little more inspiration DT member Nicki has a FAB card on her blog today HERE. That's all I have to share with you all today, I will be back again tomorrow with more. Until then, thank you for stopping by :) 

Card Stock: White (Boyes) SU! Orchid Opulence (Retired)
Ink: VersaMagic Spring Pansy, PTI Summer Sunrise & VersaFine Onyx Black
Stamps: Uniko Studio Flower Power #1 & #4 and Background Builders: Vines


  1. It's so pretty!! Love the soft purple and how you constructed the flower!1

  2. Very pretty! Love the idea of a flower made from flowers:)

  3. Bev this is so pretty, Ii am so glad you had a nice break. Take them now while you can! Thank you so much for sharing with us at CASology!

  4. Beautiful, Bev! Wonderful idea to layer the flowers to create a cluster, and the colours are certainly spring (the snow is STILL falling as I write. Seriously, enough with the flakes!). Great to hear you enjoyed some quiet time with your husband. We're just back from visiting my family - and the highlights, of course, include time with my niece and nephew. The older they get, the more precious the moments, especially now that they're both riding bikes. Too. Much. Fun. When your twins are old enough, I highly recommend run-bikes as a start (no pedals; they just use their feet), because wow, do they ever learn balance! From there, straight to two-wheeled bikes - no training wheels required! Look at me - the non-mom giving the soon-to-be mom advice! I'll stop...LOVE your card! Hugs~c

  5. Bev, I love this!!! The layered flowers are beautiful and perfectly placed! So glad you had a nice break! Chocolate is a must during such occasions! :)
